Thumbs Up!

Forgot to pick a winner yesterday! Oops. Just went to bed without checking. So.........using my handy generator that I never thought would pick Number 1 AND it's also been picking numbers only above like 15.......or so I thought.

It's Rose #1 and Carrie P. #25 who will be getting some notecards. Thanks everyone for humoring me. You made me smile over the ones you liked. I think I'm with most of you. I'm crazy about the ones from our last retreat, particularly the wool pin cushions. I think I'm just going to order me a set of ALL wool pincushion notecards.

I've been working on these ridiculous THIRTY baskets
(the baskets AREN'T ridiculous, the making of THIRTY is)

that my husband talked me into making for his teachers at school. It's taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R. So many steps. Streamlined or not....it's still a lot of time and I'm running out of it. What am I doing blogging?

Loved the Hot Pad Mama Tutorial, so I whipped up 4 more for my Freezer Club gals for Christmas. I just used leftover blocks from my dad's quilt (that I'm sure Corrie is going to show you ANYDAY now, when she gets it bound, right?)

I love these. They are so fun and easy.

If you're not making 30.


  1. Glad to see those beautiful hot pads. I think I will put one on and my apron from retreat on (thanks Lela) and go get MaMa Mia. Yes, out today on video. Thought I'd mention it just in case you forgot.... love ya

  2. 30! Whoa. I think you should enlist the help of your darling family. I'm sure there's something for them to do. :) And yes, I would love to see another quilt! I'm off to the dentist.SO NOT looking forward to it. Have a great day!

  3. I am a winner. I am sending you an email with my address. Thanks so much and congrats to Rose.

  4. Congratulations to the winners! Those will be cheerful cards to send. :D 30 of anything to sew, production line or not gets tedious. Hang in there! Love the hot pads and I can't wait to see the quilt that they are leftovers from.

  5. Those baskets are So Stinkin Cute.

    I need them.

    I got Mamma Mia and it came with the soundtrack on Cd. Yes. It. Did. Uh Huh.

    If you haven't got it yet check my blog for a fix.

  6. congrats to the winners.

  7. Cute cute stuff. I feel like stopping the clock and getting off the sewing not so merry go round. Sheesh. Not time to get a bad headache.

  8. Oh my heck are those hot pads SO DARN COOL! I LoVe the fabric. LoVe em. Um, didn't you tell us many moons ago, you were needing to make 30 baskets? LOL. You're nuts. I think Santa owes you. LOL. ;o)

  9. love the hot gloves. good for you using up your scraps. i made one of those baskets for a gift. i might make more. because they are cute. but just one at a time. hope you don't get nightmares about basket people running after you.
